Spiegel: Washington requires NATO to send AWACS aircraft to the Middle East

31
US diplomats in Brussels insist on the direct participation of NATO forces in the antiterrorist operation in Iraq and Syria, and demand that AWACS radar detection aircraft be sent there, reports RIA News a message from the magazine Spiegel.




As the publication explains, “airplanes with the AWACS system can be used as flying command centers and for coordinating the work of fighters of the international military coalition.”

The magazine recalls that in a request to provide the coalition with AWACS planes, Washington appealed to the 2016 alliance in January. But then "NATO member countries did not agree to support the United States."

In the White House, this decision was taken by the allies without enthusiasm. And in early April, Obama spoke behind closed doors with Alliance Secretary General Stoltenberg. Now NATO diplomats confirm that the issue of AWACS is being discussed again in the organization. According to them, the decision should be made until mid-May.

“This issue will also be included on the agenda of the meeting of defense ministers on Wednesday in Stuttgart, which will be attended by the head of the Pentagon Ashton Carter and the Minister of Defense of Germany Ursula von der Lyayen. Their colleagues from the UK, the Netherlands, Canada, Spain, New Zealand, Australia and Denmark are also expected, ”the newspaper writes.

The magazine notes that "many diplomats from NATO member countries are critical of the idea of ​​the presence of AWACS aircraft in Syria and Iraq," including the Germans, who "emphasize the current contribution of their soldiers already flying reconnaissance planes Tornado" in the conflict zone .

    If Washington demands, there is no doubt that Brussels will comply, there it is still to steer Washington.

        In the next stage, Ukrainian, Baltic and other European sixes will send their soldiers to slaughter the barmales in the name of American interests.

      Yeah, the mackerels are sleeping and they see how to unleash the 3rd world, it’s just that Mr Brzezinski’s strategy was rolling out a new one so that he would play Kaschey the mothballs faster in the box.

      Everything goes according to the plan of the United States, London leaves the European Union and the United States enters troops and has the entire European Union as they want and where they want. Then, together with the Anglo-Saxons, they will be forced to go east to war, everything is brilliant.

    Aircraft radar detection AWACS, MANPADS for "moderate opposition" ...
    What kind of fairy tales will the flying command centers begin to sculpt now, who will coordinate and whom will the target designation be?

      Why fairy tales? The tasks for such aircraft are the sea. And we would have to build something similar to this system if we, as NATO, did not fundamentally interact with the Syrian authorities.

      It's just that instead of the vague "AWACS" it is necessary to use the native abbreviation "AWACS" or "early warning radar and Management"and many questions will be answered.

          The fact that the anti-terrorist activities of the US Armed Forces and the Armed Forces of the countries of the "anti-terrorist coalition" are seriously limited by politics is no secret to anyone.

          And the fact that the coalition is forced to use AWACS aircraft is just a small fad in the huge list of consequences from this systemic problem

      "AWACS"

      Yes, they send them to spy on our advanced electronic warfare.
      The adversaries of our radio caps are afraid.

    Apparently, the Barmalei acquired modern aviation, since they urgently needed AWACS? Or are they needed to control the videoconferencing system? But does NATO resist the hegemon? Here are the rascals.

    who will the radar detect radio there? and why should the headquarters fly and not sit peacefully on the ground? ISIS does not fly, it’s creeping all over

    The very case when the Allies are in no hurry to take the visor, at the command of the Americans. But because it’s expensive. All expenses are calculated. Profits are not expected in the short term. No one is flying anywhere. Golden billion can not afford to spend money on war. Nonsense? Reality. And they think they can fight with us?

      The American managing businessmen even benefit from this fact, since they didn’t want to take over ASAD with all of NATOM, it means that they will have to sign the Transatlantic Trade Agreement between the USA and the EU faster, which, along with an uncontrolled flow of migrants, will hit the entire EU economy (my opinion). These overseas ghouls still bend their friends from the EU - nothing personal business (his mother).

    The most common work activity for the military, of course. In Syria, our electronic warfare equipment is being worked out. Installed on the aircraft of the Russian Aerospace Forces, and specialized such as "Krasukha". The reconnaissance aircraft of the Russian Aerospace Forces work in this region. Technology is being improved on both sides of the conflict. There is no independent ISIS that has arisen out of the blue. Today's reality is just that. A hybrid, centric war can be called by anyone, but the essence is the same. This is WAR! And it always goes on!

      One of the functions of these aircraft is the detection of REP signal sources.
      So it is not yet known, we will "try" or they will receive information

    Hehe .. The US has rusty nuclear missiles, modernization has not been carried out since the 80s.
    They relied on precision weapons and, until recently, rested on their laurels ... until Caliber hit the Caspian.
    And now the United States is forced to harness the race, and their nuclear technology is 50 years behind our years - such a disaster.

    I wouldn’t have disgraced already, sent my AWACS. No, this type is not us, this NATO mustache is to blame. It is clear that the Germans and other Frenchmen are not enthusiastic, because it’s clear to the hedgehog that AWACs are needed there against Russia, well, also Iran, and all the info will merge with the barmales, including the Turks.

    And why it’s not being criticized, it’s one benefit from the technical side, it means political objections. But no specifics, one can only guess. Well, the article ... sad

    “AWACS aircraft can be used as flying command centers and to coordinate the work of fighters of the international military coalition.”

    If you look at how the United States, at the head of the coalition, is fighting ISIS in Iraq and Syria, it becomes clear that the coordination of their fighters is clearly needed against the Aerospace Forces just in case. Another attempt to hide the true goals by announcing the fictional ones.

    What kind of drone do they need there for? Aircraft AWACS are needed to control aircraft operations. Why the hell are they for tactical attacks on the ground, for this is enough ground control? The answer is to track our aviation. And here the main question is, why follow us? Another Turk to bring?
    By the way, Avax is protected from air attacks in our opinion by a whole regiment of fighters. For shot down AWACS, they said, they give the hero. Because breaking into it is almost impossible.
